Pivotal match even this early in the season, definitely don't want to be losing this one and hopeful that a win will help build confidence ahead of St Johnstone at the weekend.

Team wise I'd shape up something like this:

Langfield
Hector
Reynolds
Anderson
Considine
Flood
Jack
Pawlett
Wylde
Hayes
McGinn

Don't really think any of Zola, Magennis or Vernon have done enough to justify a start so give Wylde a chance.

With only 5 subs permitted it will be interesting to see who drops out from Saturday's 18.

In. 2-1 The club I love but Hartley will hae his lads fired up will be tough certainly after Hearts & picking team up, I hope mcinnes goes with Magennis add a bit o pace upfront along side Niall.

Think it's £15 for adults, sure it was £12 for season ticket holders if they reserved their seat before 5pm on Friday.

Perhaps a chance for Zola or perhaps even McGinn to get in amongst the (open play) goals and get a bit of confidence and momentum in front of goal?


That's how I look at it.

Hopefully a battering. It's time we were confident going into these kind of games. I'd take a 1-0 but we should be looking at 3 or 4!

 

Mind you... I said that about the Hearts game  :suicide:

You've got to fancy Alloa will go looking for goals given the 'quality' of our goalkeepers.

 

I'd be punting balls into the Aberdeen box every opportunity I got if I were Alloa. Got to be good for a couple of goals.

I agree with Ke1t.  The Dons will need to score 2 or perhaps more to progress, because they won't have a clean sheet.  I would be surprised if Hartley doesn't employ a shoot-on-sight policy and with the goons available for goalkeeping duties, one or two will inevitably come up trumps.

The worrying thing is how transparent we are. Anyone who's done any sort of home work on Aberdeen FC will recognise our glaring weaknesses and exploit them.

 

We are struggling at fullback and our goalkeepers are terrible off crosses.

 

You don't need to be Jose Mourinho to work out the most effective means of beating Aberdeen.

Going to this tomorrow.

 

3-0 the Dandies, early goal to calm the crowd down.

 

Any word of the younger lads getting a look in? I'd like to see Shankland get a start.


  • 0

They’ll slip into liquidation within the next couple of weeks with a new company emerging but 140 years of history, triumph and tears, will have ended.

No matter how Charles Green attempts to dress it up, a newco equals a new club. When the CVA was thrown out Rangers as we know them died. They were closed and a newco must start from scratch.

 

Never let the bastards forget it

 Normally I'd say we need to go with our strongest team, can't afford to play the young lads, but theres no way playing Smith is a risk, a far better footballer than Vernon, Magennis or Zola. Shankland, I've no idea, but should definitely give him a run out if we are comfotably winning.

I'd certainly be happy to give Smith, or Shankland a wee go alongside McGinn in this game cos the others have had plenty chances & not taken them.

Saying that also it could be the perfect game to get our misfiring strikers to actually find the net finally.

Be interesting to see what McInnes does with this one.

 

Main thing is he has to play our wingers on the correct side though. Just a crazy thought. Oh & take the best thing Craig Brown done & play him in the fkn middle again. The only place he's actually proven & proven very well there.

 

We need to play this game like a latter stage cup game against decent opposition cos if we approach it like we did Hearts, then we will get a fright.

That sounds logical, but I really don't think if Zola scores 2 in this game he's going to go on some kind of scoring run in the league. Same goes for Magennis, I could envisage Vernon doing it, in that he is capable of scoring but his confidence levels are below zero. However after Saturday I think the youngsters deserve a shot at it more than he does, he got it and blew it spectacularly!
